District Mistake Keeps School Board Candidate Out Of Race
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Tanya Keith is disappointed. The Des Moines mother of three wanted to serve her community by running for school board. She followed all the instructions on how to do that on the district's website; specifically how and where to collect signatures to get on the ballot. But it turns out those directions were wrong. "That requirement was misstated. And by the time I turned in my paperwork I didn't have time to correct the mistake that they caused me to make." Keith said.
